PADI EFRI - Emergency First Response Instructor (1 day)

This course teaches Instructors how to organize, conduct, market and promote the PADI Emergency First Response Course (EFRI). The course emphasizes hands-on skills practice and demonstrations. We have placed the EFRI Course in between the IDC and IE to give you some additional teaching practice. The EFRI Course is low stress and makes you feel confident and relaxed prior to the IE.

With EFR being a vital part of several PADI certification levels (including, Rescue Diver, Divemaster, Assistant Instructor and Instructor Development) it is the one most marketable course in the PADI System of diver education and allows you to offer all-inclusive programs. Students will not have to look elsewhere for the training they need.

Since the Emergency First Response course is not diving specific, you can offer this training to all your customers, friends and family. Our EFR Instructor course now includes PADI's new Care for Children and AED program.

Dive Resort Management (10 days)

Most Dive Centers, especially in tropical diving destinations,have two main sources of income, diving instruction and diving excursions, and often a combination of both.
This means that your duties will be both of an instructional and supervisory nature. Tourists in tropical, holiday destinations are often demanding and expect to dive when they want to, where they want to, and how they want to. This requires organization and communication, not to mention excellent scheduling and facility maintenance skills.
During this program, you will deal with real life situations in our 5 Star Dive Centers in Kata and Karon Beach. Practical diving experience will be gained aboard our daily excursion boat to the various dive sites around the island of Phuket.

Sales Training (4 days)

If you think that your job is to teach and not to sell...think again. In the dive business, everyone sells... including full-time, part-time, and independent instructors. Still, very few people want to be seen in the role of a 'salesperson'.

Positive Approach Selling teaches the philosophy that selling doesn't have to be a pushy, manipulative process that many people imagine it to be. You'll learn to identify different types of personalities, including your own, and decide which sales approach is right for a given situation.
